I really liked this book and stayed up late reading it. I liked Merit even though she trod dangerously close to being Too Perfect(tm). There was generally enough other drama going on that I let it go, but it was a near thing.
I had a few minor issues. For one, I'm pretty sure every guy in this book had green eyes, and many of the major character names started with M. Not really a problem, but it got kind of funny after a while. Also, I saw the love triangle setup coming a mile away. Can't a girl like just one guy these days?
